Well, it clearly works on my powerpc pegasos/chrp box, so it is either a grub
problem, a broken MBR partition table problem, or a problem with your bios.
What tool does slackware use to partition the disk ? What kernel are you using
? And so on.
I would really appreciate if someone knowledgeable on broken x86
bios/partitiontable/grub/whatever took over here. Or alternatively, you could
get access to working (hear non-x86 :) hardware :)
